Track Name: Lies ft. DAINA
Midnight dancing in the sand
Lightning flashing on command
Meet me at the river, where the tree grows
So we can play

Finding out about your lies
Leading me like you're a spy
Watching you go away, leaving me and
Screaming out the pain

Falling through the smoke
And meeting at the fork where
Leaves fell one by one into the riverbed nearby

Maybe I was never truly useless, to you
In your mind and heart and eyes
But that still doesn't change that you lied to me;
You made me feel incomplete

Or maybe all along it was just me?
Something that I'd done had broke your heart
But does that mean that everything was wrong?
Baby, how could it be wrong?

No longer dancing in the sand
Feeling lost with no commands
My river's dried up to dust and clay
With nowhere left to play!

Falling through the smoke
And meeting at the fork where
Leaves fell one by one into the riverbed nearby

What do I do?
With nowhere left for me
Running around in circles, like I'm nothing at all
Please
My poor heart can't take much more
This situation must end
Before my heart is spent

Maybe I was never truly useless, to you
In your mind and heart and eyes
But that still doesn't change that you lied to me;
You made me feel incomplete

Or maybe all along it was just me?
Something that I'd done had broke your heart
But does that mean that everything was wrong?
Baby, how could it be wrong?

What do I do?
With nowhere left for me
Running around in circles, like I'm nothing at all
Please
My poor heart can't take much more
This situation must end
Before my heart is spent
Track Name: See Through Me ft. DEX
Is anybody still there,
Or are my words falling flat into air?
Do I even try to go further;
I probably shouldn't

Do you hear the sounds I've made?
Wandering in circles, looking to get out of this maze
So should I give up on the time we've spent;
Give me up

Am I really useless 'cause I
Can't sort out these feelings towards you

Why is it I get neglected,
When it comes down to me or nothing?
Would you rather see right through me
And ignore all the pain?
Am I just not worth it;
the suffering nor storm
Baby, look right through me,
And you'll find my heart is worn

Is it worth it to try,
Or do I just give up and just die?
Is it okay to want to stop?
Just let me stop

Am I really useless 'cause I
Can't sort out these feelings towards you

This time I'm alone
Lost in unforgiving territory
Let me sleep, let me get to sleep

Why is it I get neglected,
When it comes down to me or nothing?
Would you rather see right through me
And ignore all the pain?
Am I just not worth it;
the suffering nor storm
Baby, look right through me,
And you'll find my heart is worn
Track Name: Locked ft. CYBER SONGMAN
When you said you needed me;
What was true, what was a lie?
Were we right to say goodbye?
Everyday all I can do--
I hope you think about me too

I'll never be complete within this lifetime when
We've split into two separate (worlds)
Worlds won't collide, not if there's no reason

What can I even do
When I'm torn so far apart
Stretched thin, I'm tearing at the seams
Is there any hope to fix what's left of me?

I never thought I would be blind
Unable to get it right and hear you through until morning light
Maybe it was out of spite;
But both of us were manipulating the game we played
I'll never be complete within this lifetime when

We've split into two separate (worlds)
Worlds won't collide, not if there's no reason

Tossing and turning from dusk til dawn onward
The mirror speaks to me when we get to midnight
"Darling, how are you?" It whispered softly
I wish I could tell you, but I know you won't hear

What can I even do
When I'm torn so far apart
Stretched thin, I'm tearing at the seams
Is there any hope to fix what's left of me (x2)
Track Name: Wolf in Sheep's Clothing ft. CYBER SONGMAN
the feelings coming over me--
dissipate so i don't have to feel
what gets me every time

i'll hide it in plain sight;
these feelings
that haunt me all the fucking time
they never leave my mind

it's easily the only thing
that keeps me up from midnight on
until morning

days have passed and i have
not moved to dance to this rhythm
its blurred into noise and
static fills my ears;
doesn't that make me the wolf in this story?

(its not that easy)
(hear me, baby)
(for simplicity's sake)
(let me tell you what's at stake)

i'm the monster in this story
there's no point in arguing against this fact (x3)
there really is no point
and you know that it's true

days have passed and i have
not moved to dance with this rhythm
its blurred into noise and
static fills my ears;

Track Name: Deep Thoughts - Instrumental
I need to make it
Through the stormy night
But maybe it'd be better if I didn't

It'd all end the same
No matter what;
My demise would be the best thing
to ever happen to the world

It's almost like I'm
stuck in a nightmare

If only this pain would go
Or better yet, let me end it all
None of it is worth it--
Not at all if you're not here;
The overwhelming feelings
that I get from being alone
I'm on the verge of suicide
Hurry and save me from me

Save me from all my pain and suffering;
I'm constantly unwanted
Just get rid of it all for me

It's almost like I'm
stuck in a nightmare

Darling, dearest
My heart can't take much more
It's truly quite a crisis,
Going through it all;
Baby please--
It's quite a horrifying experience,
A horrifying experience indeed

If only this pain would go
Or better yet, let me end it all
None of me is worth it
No-no-none of me is worth it, dear
The overwhelming feelings
that I get from being alone
I'm on the verge of suicide
Hurry and save me from me

If only this pain would go
Or better yet, let me end it all
None of it is worth it--
Not at all if you're not here;
The overwhelming feelings
that I get from being alone
I'm on the verge of suicide
Hurry and save me from me
